The circulation of high-speed trains that link the Madrid-Chamartín station with the Valencian Community and Murcia is gradually recovering once Adif technicians have repaired the incident in the signaling of detours 5 and 7 in Chamartín that has affected the three railway companies that operate at this station.

The breakdown has affected two passing signals at the Madrid station, which did not work correctly, which has caused the authorization to pass to have to be given by the technicians and not automatically, according to Adif sources told EFE.

Adif sources consulted by Europa Press spoke of an average delay of 40 minutes in the circulation of high-speed trains. Minutes before seven in the afternoon, the railway infrastructure manager reported that his technicians had managed to solve the incident, so circulation was recovered and it was expected that it would return to normal..

According to Ouigo sources consulted by Europa Press, five company trains have been affected by the breakdown, two between Alicante and Madrid and another three between Valencia and the capital. In this case, delays range from 2 hours and 40 minutes to just half an hour. All travelers affected, and who have been more than 60 minutes late, will receive compensation of 100% of the total amount of their journey in the event of an incident that has been caused by reasons beyond the control of the operator.
